The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 counts as one of the most reprehensible laws in American history. But rather than wait for Congress to repeal it, or for the Supreme Court to strike it down, Northern States took action to nullify it in practice and effect.

The Electoral College has become a hotly contested issue in American politics with a strong and vocal movement to do away with the institution and instead select the president based on whoever receives the most total votes.

In this presentation for Empower U, Michael Maharrey explains what the electoral college is, chronicles how the framers of the Constitution came up with this method of selecting the president and how it fits more broadly with the American Constitutional system.

Maharrey also explains why changing presidential elections to a popular vote would fundamentally alter that system.

Here's something that should be obvious - the federal government isn't authorized to implement treaties that override the limitations on their power under the constitution. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin goes through some basics and then talks about how they're using this power to implement a federal prohibition on cannabis/marijuana

In 1786, a group of veterans from the War for Independence challenged the republican government of Massachusetts over harsh taxation and the lack of debt relief. To many, Shays’ Rebellion necessitated the grant of additional power to Congress…but did it really? In this video, Dave Benner explains.

Two lessons for today from the 3rd and 4th Presidents. How Jefferson tackled the national debt, and how Madison dealt with Congress passing a bill for infrastructure spending.

A lot of people believe the Preamble to the Constitution gives the federal government the power to do just about anything. And a lot of people are wrong.

This week, a "bombshell" report claims that months ago NSA stopped the bulk phone data collection program under Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act. But a look under the hood reveals something far different than the media reports and claims of "a senior Republican congressional aide."

The federal government needs state and local support to enforce gun laws and the anti-gun lobby knows it. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin tells a story about Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America from just weeks ago - their "concern" should be a green light to push forward with this strategy to stop federal gun control.

In 1793, a controversial Supreme Court opinion convinced Congress to amend the Constitution to provide a more explicit safeguard for federalism. Indeed, even Federalists considered the majority opinion in Chisholm v. Georgia as an overt example of overreach by the federal judiciary.

In this video, Dave Benner explains why.

The Supreme Court got one right - and they've repeatedly done so time and time again. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin talks about James Madison's advice for individuals and states - and how the Supreme Court has actually backed him up in a legal doctrine known as "anti-commandeering."

Did you know North Carolina and Rhode Island were both independent countries for a short while even after the Constitution was ratified?

The national debt has pushed above the $22 trillion mark and is up $2.06 trillion since Donald Trump took office. This isn't just bad policy on the part of both Republicans and Democrats - it's dangerous to liberty.
